Good news! (well, mostly)

Good news!
You’re bound to do me good
Come right here to me Good news!
Good news!
You’re what I’ve waited for
I wasn’t slated for blues!

Seems we’ve managed to vote the Bush tyrant out.

Ah, Democracy, how nice to see you again!

(Now we just need Prop 8 to lose in California so we can all get on with making a finer world.)

Update: Grrrrrr, we got too many haters that vote in California. Well, I don’t see how this discrimination can legally be written into our State constitution. If that were possible, women would be chattel, and slavery and polygamy would be legal in several states. Yeah, Mormons, I’m looking at you. But, as has been true for the Mormons as for other groups in our crazy country, I can’t say it better than Dr. King: The arc of history is long but it bends toward justice.

    Hey! The Mormons can’t all be to blame. We have feelings too! When Utah had their state constitutional amendment there were some Mormons that did vote against it (I was one of them). And for Utah to become a state polygamy had to be abolished and it is against the law (but, we don’t need to go into the whole Warren Jeffs deal).

    I realize that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the official name for the Mormons) came out for Prop. 8 and encouraged the California members to vote for the amendment. But a few things need to be said. The Church doesn’t take political stands too often. When they do take a stand they leave the decision up to the members. You aren’t required to vote a certain way to stay a member. A large part of our beliefs are that everyone has the right to choose whatever path they want. Just be prepared for the consequences that follow.

    Sorry for the long rant. Ginger, you know I love you! It just gets frustrating when Mormon misconceptions run rampant. The members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have a wide variety of opinions and personal beliefs. Being a member of this church I know I take issues a little sensitively. But I’m also not your typical Mormon. We have a running joke in my family that we are all too liberal to be Mormons. These comments are coming from an active member who reads yaoi and voted for Ralph Nader in this last election. I also tend to vote for Democratic candidates. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it (unless your Mormon, you shouldn’t be smoking a pipe)!
